August club Zoom Meeting
Wednesday, August 19th, at 2 PM
This month's Zoom will be all about us. Prepare a 5 minute showcase of your work. In the meantime, send us your book cover, back cover, website, promo-- we want to know all about your published and planned publications--we want to help you get the word out!
Welcome new members: Nancy Brown, who is writing "Granny's Story". Her grandmother's manuscript describing her adoption of over 100 children; Michael Berman who has written a children's book and wants ideas as to how to promote it and last but not least, Theresa Keegan, who will be our facilitator for writing newspaper articles in October.
Congratulations to Phil Silverman, Doug Sainsbury and Allan Rankin, who have recently published outstanding books.
September will be Story telling time in September, so start practicing your 8-minute story. November is open, perhaps Sunshine would finish her presentation as to how to upload a book to KDP. December is elections, raffle and a pot luck--if we've 'opened up' by then.

The Publishing Club of Laguna Woods Village
The Publishing Club of Laguna Woods Village includes established and first-time authors, award-winning writers, poets, and storytellers, all of whom share a common interest in understanding the world of publishing. Among us are authors of memoirs, biographies, humor, poetry, mystery novels, children's books, sci-fi, and more. Some authors use traditional publishing methods; some self-publish their work; and others want a few copies for family and friends. We believe that, even if we may not have a book in us, all of us has at least one story to tell, and we want to help each other tell it - and to then tell more. To join the Publishing Club, download our membership form below.*
*Membership is open to residents of Laguna Woods Village only
